revenge? or do they just like purple?

Stanley told me about this house a while ago, and we finally snapped a shot of it while driving by a week or so ago. It’s on a corner of Flax Hill Road, in Norwalk. It’s very interesting in that the yard and gardens are meticulously maintained, and everything looks trim and tidy. But a closer look reveals the paint job is, um, less than professionally done. Which leads us to suspect this is the result of a fit of pique. But, we could be wrong.

It really is purple. My photo doesn’t do justice to its purpleness. I’m sure the neighbors are fit to be tied. It’s not a high-end neighborhood, but it is a neighborhood with a lot of house pride: people mow their lawns and trim their hedges and rake their leaves and maintain their houses.

It must be really hard to find plants and shrubs that don’t look gaggy against grape.
